Starting signal for the 'Wild Sunday' at the MainÄppelHaus

Local history of a somewhat different kind is promised by Environment and Women's Affairs Director Rosemarie Heilig for the new summer series "Wilder Sonntag". Concerts, a jazz poetry slam or guided tours of some of Frankfurt's most beautiful places are on the agenda for the summer holidays. Even a place like the ruins of the burnt-down Goethe Tower is to be filled with joyful sounds. The concerts always start on Sundays at 3 p.m., only a guided tour to Monte Scherbelino starts already at 10 a.m. because of the World Cup final. Everyone who is curious and in a good mood is welcome. Rosemarie Heilig says: "Let's celebrate the diversity of our cosmopolitan, green city at Wild Sunday."

Let's get started on Sunday, June 24, with "Kick La Luna" at the MainÄppelHaus. At 3 pm, the five power women will bring an excellent atmosphere to the Lohrberg with "Female World Music". With their ethno-crossover of Afro, Latin, Soul and Funk, polyphonic singing and sensitive ballads, the musicians conquer their audience right from the first note. Admission to this concert is free. This also applies to the following five dates.

The program can really be seen and heard. For example, on 1 July at 3 pm, some of the most talented slam poets and poetesses from Germany will meet for the aforementioned competition at the currently prevented Goethe Tower. In honor of Goethe, the artists will celebrate the master discipline of poetry slam, the jazz slam. Text, performance, rhythm, poetry and music have to be spontaneously forged together. For the moderation City Councillor Heilig could win Dirk Hülstrunk and Jürgen Klumpe, the live music improvise Peter Klohmann (sax/fl), Heiko Duffner (git. & effects) and Martin Standke (dr).

On July 8, "Wild Sunday" will take place at a truly special venue. The historic waterworks Goldstein opens its doors for the visitors. The renowned guitarist Heike Matthiesen takes the audience there on a magical journey to water, waves and fountains. From legendary Norwegian landscapes, populated by fishermen and trolls, the program leads through German Romanticism to the Moorish-Andalusian Alhambra. Their fountains have always inspired composers to shimmering settings: music to dream and wonder, virtuosic and sensual.

On 15 July, the World Cup final in Russia is on the programme. And so that no football fan has to miss "Wild Sunday", the programme starts at 10 am on this day. A special guided tour to the Monte Scherbelino is offered. How does an old landfill site become an exciting laboratory of biodiversity and nature development? Rosemarie Heilig will present the project "Cities dare wilderness - experience diversity" with experts from the environmental office. Skyline panorama included.

On July 22 at 3 p.m., Feyza Morgül will start a climate walk through the city center. Among other things, it's about drinking water fountains, solar power filling stations, beehives on high-rise buildings and regional food.

On the final "Wild Sunday," there will be one more powerful concert in a magical venue. The King Baumgardt Duo will bring rousing blues to the rare flowers at the Botanical Gardens onJuly 29 at 3 p.m. The American singer from Kentucky is one of the best in the Rhine-Main area and has a congenial partner on guitar in Matthias Baumgardt. The "conservation cultures" of the garden will also be discussed. Here it is about practical homeland protection: about the heath vetch, the upright white chickweed and doubtful Grannenhafer. Perhaps there is something to be learned from botany for human coexistence?
